personal opinion. you can draw some parallels, lessons learned from our experience in southeast asia in the '70s and what we did as a military to focus on the greater threat at the time, the soviet union and the german defense plan and give us tremendous institutional focus. we also rebuilt ourselves as an institution professionally with the volunteer force, instituting that, getting rid of the draft. all of the military did. this whole air/land battle concept plan, building the systems and platforms, the bradley, the ph chi, the mrs, those systems that would fight that big fight. so we kind of rebuilt ourselves as a professional force coming out of southeast asia. and, quite frankly, i would argue we couldn't run out of southeast asia fast enough mentally. because we took a whole counterinsurgency, guerrilla, irregular warfare lessons learned and i think as a young man growing up in the army in the late '80s, early '90s, we tossed that aside. it was revisited only in the discussion of developing light infantry divisions in the late '80s for the express purpose of operations in latin
at the moment. i'm wondering whether if they get better growth out of asia, that will offset the weakness that they're seeing in europe enough to keep them above the pencil line. >> what we've seen so far with today's numbers is exports are declining very sharp. they'll need asia and the u.s. to offset some of that demand weakness, but again, the biggest market for most is the euro zone. if the eurozone is performing badly, that will have a thok-on effect for those countries. >> there's a number of strategists saying after the u.s. has sort of led equities for most of the year, they're now saying europe is the place to be. from i think really the question you have to ask yourself is when cash, equities, credit, government bonds, where do you want to be. and equity in my mind mind is absolutely not. you need good growth numbers to justify the equity markets going up. now, i think there's a lot of investors looking at the yields on ghoechlt bonds or credits and that's motivating them to move into equity. i think the numbers are actually going to be relatively small. and i would certainly ad
stability and security of the asia-pacific as we protect u.s. national interest. and, of course, the keys to success will be innovative access agreements, greatly increased exercises, rotational presence increases, efficient force posture initiatives that will maximize the dollars that we are given to stand. and it also is by putting our most capable forces forward, as was her newest most advanced equipment to ensure we effectively operate with our allies and partners across a wide range of operations as we work together for peace and stability. i was asked to keep these opening remarks at little shorter than the last time, so i can get to your questions. so i'd like to finish up with a couple of thoughts. the rebalanced is based on a strategy of collaboration and cooperation. thought containment. and that the united states is a pacific power that will remain a pacific power, and we at pacom look forward to doing our part to keep asia is difficult full, peaceful and secure for decades to come. thank you. >> will take our first question writer spent admiral, thank you for meeting
